Interview with Kevin James, running for LA Mayor 2013

Kevin James is the only viable City Hall outsider in the race for Mayor of Los Angeles.  As a former Assistant US Attorney, Kevin is the only candidate in the race with a prosecutorial background.  Kevin is untainted by downtown special interests and far removed from the FBI and grand jury investigations of corruption in City Hall.  Through his radio show and community involvement, Kevin developed a reputation as a problem solver and reformer and will bring needed change to the status-quo field of candidates.

Kevin James
Running for LA Mayor 2013

A native of Norman, Oklahoma, Kevin began his legal career in Los Angeles in 1988 at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.  Kevin worked in the firm's Litigation Department practicing legal strategy and negotiation skills.  Shortly thereafter, Kevin was hired by the US Department of Justice as an Assistant US Attorney in Los Angeles, where he went after criminals by using the asset forfeiture laws to disband their criminal enterprises in cases involving money laundering, insurance fraud, mail fraud, and consumer fraud.

Kevin returned to private practice as an entertainment attorney in 1993, where his experience ranged in complexity from the representation of famous entertainers, producers, and executives in litigation relating to the entertainment industry and personal matters, to representing large corporate clients in multi-million dollar business cases.

 Kevin has contributed his time, resources, and talents to help improve the community.  Kevin joined the all-colunteer Board of Directors of AIDS Project Los Angeles where he served for six years as Board Vice-Chair and Co-Chair.  Through his broadcasting career on 790 KABC and 870 KRLA, Kevin has broadened his scope of community involvement, covering the city in unrivaled detail and calling out corruption in LA City Hall.  Kevin has spent time in almost every neighborhood in the City through his recent Neighborhood Council Tour, listening to Council Board Members, neighborhood leaders, and residents, and learning about their issues and concerns.  Kevin then took those issues and concerns to the powerful Southern California airwaves to bring reform, change, and improvements in those neighborhoods.

 Kevin has continued to work tirelessly to expose the failed policies of current city leadership, to shine the light on the fiscal mismanagement of the city by many of its elected officials, and to expose a culture of corruption in city government that harms all of Los Angeles.  Kevin continues to stay actively involved in our communities through town hall meetings, Chamber and neighborhood functions, and campaign debates, all while maintaining his private law practice.
